An ogre tries to play Super Mario World

Two brains are not enough

Simone de Rochefort has been producing & hosting YouTube videos for Polygon since 2016. She co-directed the upcoming documentary The Great Game: The Making of Spycraft.

Super Mario World is a game that is very hard to play when you’re actually two people who can’t communicate very well.

Game Ogre is our bi-weekly video game challenge show. After being cursed by a powerful game wizard, Pat and I must share a body and achieve goals as laid out to us by the wizard, who hates our guts.

On this episode, Pat and I foolishly invoke the concept of wizards and are cursed to play Super Mario World until we die, probably. Pat controls the face buttons with his right hand, and I take the joystick with my left.

I won’t tell you how far we manage to get. It’s all in the above video, which contains references to extremely old memes and ’90s toys, as well as lots of yelling.
